The Best Sloppy Joes Ever!

My friend Beth McKenzie made a ton of this for everyone who helped us move into our new home. Mark and I had never tasted any sloppy joe as good as this! Honestly, this has ruined my husband and he no longer enjoys any other kind of sloppy joes :) He just thinks these are soo much better! I usually double this and freeze it for an easy meal later :)

1 lb ground beef
2 T. chopped onion
2 T. green pepper
2 T. celery
¼ tsp. garlic salt
½ cup ketchup
1 tsp. prepared mustard
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2-3 T. lemon juice
1 T. vinegar
2-3 T. Italian dressing
2-3 T. brown sugar
sprinkled cinnamon

Directions: In a medium skillet, combine beef, onion, green pepper, celery, and garlic salt; Cook and stir until meat is brown and veggies are tender. Drain fat. Stir together rest of ingredients – Spread over meat and cook until heated through.
